NEIGHBORHOOD & DIVERSIONS

Hotel Marcel's waterfront location in the Historic Long Wharf District of New Haven — at the gateway to New England — makes us privy to a diversity of cultural and nature-fueled activities.  Yale University and museums are nearby favorites along with the Shubert Theater and Wooster Square's legendary pizza. Dragon boating, sailing and rowing, wine tasting, upscale shopping and our footsteps-away entrance to Vision Trail and biking and walking along the quintessential foliage-filled Farmington Canal Trails, offer plenty of chances for merry memory-making.  And when you're ready to arrive, depart or further explore by train, we're a hop, skip, jump or, if preferred, a short drive to New Haven's Union Station. 
Beinecke Rare Book Library

The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library inspires engagement with the past, in the present, for the future. One of the world's largest libraries devoted entirely to rare books and manuscripts, it is Yale University Library's principal repository of literary archives, early manuscripts, and rare books. 
Canal Dock Boathouse

Canal Dock Boathouse

Canal Dock has partnered with the City of New Haven to conduct community-oriented, waterfront boating activities at The Canal Dock Boathouse on Long Wharf. Multiple types of recreational boating opportunities are already underway (dragon boating, kayaking & rowing) and new programs are planned for the future.
Farmington Heritage Canal Trail

Farmington Heritage Canal Trail

The fifty-six miles of the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail (FCHT) and the eighteen miles of the Farmington River Trail constitute the most picturesque and historic greenways in New England. The Connecticut section from New Haven to Suffield runs through eleven towns and connects with many more biking and walking trails.
